Why is it that a new book release makes me unable to bottle up my excitement?

Even though my must-read list is already longer than I can possibly manage to read in my lifetime and my books don’t even fit on my bookshelves anymore, I still find it impossible to resist new book releases.

If you enjoy browsing through new releases like I do, you will surely love the following list of great books that we just released.

Identity Shift by Anthony Trucks

August 24, 2021

There’s nothing more essential to making your dreams come true than identity. Living in today’s modern society, we have more access to resources than ever before. Wherever we turn, people are making the best out of their situation and showcasing their success, whether that is their physical appearance, economic status, or luxurious lifestyle. But this constant bombardment of extremely impressive people takes a toll on the rest of us, leading to feelings of shame and low self-worth. Can anyone be blamed for feeling like they don’t fit in?

The Offline Dating Method by Camille Virginia

August 31, 2021

Many of us are already getting tired of reducing themselves to a socially acceptable blurb only to get the chance to attract someone who is, most likely, not nearly as good as he presents himself to be online. When dating apps were first introduced, they were fun – they were something new and potentially more effective, so many women saw them as the perfect opportunity to meet men. Now, though, it has become obvious that the digital world is far from a utopian one: so why not turn back to actually finding a soul mate in the real world?

Making Cannabis Personal by Len May

September 7, 2021

Making Cannabis Personal sheds light on a completely different perspective of cannabis, i.e., its ability to interact with genetics and lead to unique and highly personalized experiences. Namely, Len May started expressing his interest in cannabinoids ever since his adolescence, and this interest was growing along with him. He witnessed many people believing that using cannabis was morally or politically wrong, so in his book, he masterfully debunks these beliefs and offers contemporary readers a fresh perspective on the astonishing medicinal uses of cannabis.

The Startup Growth Book by Andrew Lee Miller

September 14, 2021

Who needs spending money on marketing when you can read about all the proven ways to set the stage for supporting your startup’s growth? It’s true, marketing is the number one reason why startup companies fail, and the vast majority of new businesses end up closing simply because they didn’t invest in marketing in time. In fact, founders seem to be dreading marketing, seeing it as something impossible to achieve until they start earning money so that they can afford it, but this is an absolute misconception. Real marketing should always be a priority – and it can be done for free!

School of Man by Cole Rodgers & Guy Choate

September 14, 2021

Here’s the chance for you to become a master of your own life – to learn how to not merely survive but to thrive. If you, too, are interested in reinventing yourself or you feel like you’ve lost your own sense of identity, you might be on the right track – there’s a bigger world out there than merely doing things just for the sake of doing something. Many of us think that everyday mundanities are all there is to life, but they couldn’t be more wrong. There’s much more if you know how to truly love and want to leave a legacy behind.

Hard Truth About Becoming a Successful Author

Hard Truth About Becoming a Successful Author

Here is a hard truth about becoming a successful author:

Writing a great book is not enough.

It may take you months to write your book (or even years, or decades if you procrastinate long enough).

And as good as it feels to put the finishing touches on your manuscript…

That is just the beginning of your journey to author success.

Even editing, cover design, layout and formatting your book to look and read well doesn’t get you there.

Sooner or later you (and every author) will be confronted with the hard reality of becoming a best-selling author and it almost always comes down to one word:


Influence, authority, leadership and respect await you on the other side of slaying the marketing dragon… 

As in, actually getting out there and being the biggest advocate for your message. 

As in, actually talking to people about your book and the ideas, inspiration and advice contained within it

As in, getting out of your own way and letting your light shine to the world. Getting right with the fact that if you don’t start the process of building marketing momentum there is very little chance someone will do it for you.

The good news is, even though it can be scary to switch from “writing mode” – which is mostly an individual, private experience – to “marketing mode” – which by definition involves other people, it doesn’t have to be difficult.

The key to becoming great at marketing your book (and every other offer you create) comes down to one thing:

=> Shifting your perspective from “what do I want to say” (aka writing mode) to “how can this benefit others”

Here’s what Carol-Ann Marshal realized after she attended an author training I ran:

Did you catch that sentence “I came away with a renewed sense of what is possible being an author, the gift that I have to offer the world and a number of new friends…

Carol-Ann made the connection that sharing her message with the world is the goal, and the book is the vehicle that gets you into motion. 

Great marketing comes down to sharing about what you’ve created, and doing so in language that lands with the listener. 

When you focus on how your reader’s life will improve when they read your book…

When you focus on solving the most pressing problem they are facing…

When you focus on inspiring others to elevate their experience of life and bring new meaning into it…

Then you ARE marketing your book, just not in a sleazy “salesy” way, but in a way that actually lands.

Because you are connecting with what is important to THEM, instead of focusing on what is important to you.

In fact, the only thing that is “hard” about becoming a successful author and entrepreneur is making this shift.

The shift from thinking about yourself, what you want, and what you need => To making your default question: 

How can I improve this person’s life or help them solve a problem and make it as quick and easy as possible for them?

The next time you catch yourself thinking “But I hate marketing…” or “I just want to focus on writing…” or “Marketing is so much work…”

Just, STOP – pause for a moment. Take a breath.

Then refocus on “How can I help this person succeed?” or, “What can improve their day right away?” or, “How can I solve their most pressing problem quickly and easily?”

It is incredible how simply asking the right questions begin producing the right answers. 

Then, all of a sudden, you are coming up with creative ways to help people, share your message, be and inspiration and build your influence with every conversation and piece of “marketing” content you publish.

That, my friend, is how to sell a LOT of books and impact a LOT of lives.

That is the path that leads to generating $10,000+ of sales before your book even comes out.

That one shift sets you on a direction of inspiration, influence and authority…

Redefining Work-Life Balance by Jim Bird

Redefining Work-Life Balance by Jim Bird

“My promise to you is that by applying these proven tools, you will create immediate positive outcomes, personally and professionally.”


Jim Bird

Best-Selling Author of Redefining Work-Life Balance

Yes – There Is Work-Life Balance! … but it’s probably not what you think.

Too many academics and HR departments have defined work-life balance in superficial ways that make it unattainable, undesirable, or both. Common sense dictates that if something you desire is ill-defined or “impossible,” your outcomes will be disappointing and potentially even harmful.  But sadly, common sense hasn’t been common practice. 

Redefining Work-Life Balance is about creating life-altering, positive results. These pages convey a way to deliver powerful results using simple, one-minute tools proven to enhance life balance and enjoyment. The outcome is reduced stress, increased achievement, and more joy every day – for the rest of your life.

Discover and enjoy easy-to-learn concepts with practical applications to:

  • Understand what work-life balance really means
  • Avoid the “As soon as…” trap
  • Establish a ‘Way of Living’ Goal –  A powerful tool for crafting how you live every day
  • Accomplish your work-life priorities faster… and with less stress
  • Find a more rewarding and happier balance in all your relationships
  • Master the emotion-decision link with your personal emotional management tool

The tools and tactics in Redefining Work-Life Balance were refined while building a light manufacturing business from a small startup to generating over $100,000,000 in sales with a great team of 250+! That success and the success of thousands of clients is made possible by adapting and applying these tools, and respecting that in addition to having a job, each one of us has a life. 

Create more achievement at work and more enjoyment in life with Redefining Work-Life Balance!

Part One of this book begins by dispelling the myth that there is no such thing as work-life balance. Instead, it delivers a proven re-definition that is clear, fulfilling, and attainable, along with a tool set that will enhance the value and positive balance you get from life – today and every day.

Part Two is about people and relationships. You will learn two powerful one-minute tools that can be applied to your life immediately. The outcome is having a more rewarding, less stressed, and happier balance with the important individuals in your personal and work life. In each chapter, you will also see examples from people who have generously shared their personal stories and experiences in implementing these tools.

Part Three is about achieving the things you want in life. It delivers two tools that supercharge your thinking. You will get more good thinking done with each of these tools in minutes than most people get done in days, weeks, or even a lifetime of typical pondering.

You will also discover two balance measurement tools: one gauges your emotional status and reactions, the other illuminates your current emphasis in life and enables you to adjust it easily if it is not where you want it to be.

Part Four concludes these pages using your definition of a good work-life balance to clarify your Way of Life goals. These goals are not specific markers to surpass or milestones to accomplish, they are instead way of living goals. What are the most meaningful and important outcomes you want from your life every day? You will be surprised how quickly these meaningful and often life-changing goals become clear with this final tool in the book.

My promise to you is that by applying these proven tools, you will create immediate positive outcomes, personally and professionally.

More importantly, based on the feedback I have received across demographics, countries, and cultures, I expect that you too will retain and use your favorite tools along with your re-definition of work-life balance to be happier, less stressed, and more fulfilled over your lifetime. 

Let’s turn the page and redefine work-life balance in a way that works for you!

5-Year Anniversary: For the Love of Books

5-Year Anniversary: For the Love of Books

5-Year Anniversary: For the Love of Books

Five years ago this month I made a decision. After self-publishing my first book, The Entrepreneurs Guidebook, I had caught the attention of a publisher in Malaysia, who published the first edition of Lifestyle Entrepreneur.

That experience of traveling around Asia and speaking about lifestyle design & entrepreneurship, meeting people who told me my book inspired them, in turn, inspired me. So I attended a number of author events in America and found a publisher to release and updated and expanded edition of Lifestyle Entrepreneur

All the preparation and anticipation eliminated in my book coming out stateside in March 2014. It was then that I made a decision to start a publishing company. I had been informally advising a few author friends and the experience of helping their books come to life, coupled with my own nascent success as an author all pointed the way.

I put together a business plan for Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press and flew to Shanghai to meet a wealthy investor friend of mine. Sitting high above The Bund, overlooking the Shanghai skyline I recorded the audiobook for Lifestyle Entrepreneur in a most appropriate fashion and prepared to present my plan for the publishing company, along with a request for $50,000 to get it off the ground.

We met in the Roosevelt Club, an exclusive VIP members club overlooking the riverfront and iconic skyscrapers of Pudong. Besides a delicious meal and engaging conversation, nothing else came from it. But my decision was made. So I self-funded the publishing business to get it off the ground.

In those early days I did it all; advise on content, hire editors, work closely with cover designers, develop the launch strategy and build and run ads for each launch.

One thing led to another and we had some initial successes. So I launched a training course, then started hosting live events, Bestseller Summit Live in 2015, 2016 & 2017. I hired staff, empowered them, built a culture and an audience, built meaning in the name Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press.

“The hardest working man in the book business,” one author said. “The author’s secret weapon,” said another. For the love of books, I went all in. Invested everything I had. Leveraged myself to accelerate and go from strength to strength, disregarding anything that wasn’t inline with my vision.

Soon we had dozens of authors, signed a distribution deal and – 3 years later – actually didraise $50,000. The team grew, payroll grew, my responsibilities and obligations grew and for the love of books I leaned in further at every opportunity.

For years I wanted Ingram Publisher Services to be our distribution and sales partner. For years we just weren’t big enough yet. Then, last year at BookExpo NY we had a corner booth, exhibiting for the second year in a row with back-to-back author signings, me a proud publisher watching our authors work the floor, sign books, shake hands and press the flesh just I like did many years ago…and then it happened!

The director of publisher acquisitions for Ingram Publisher Services came by our booth and all our authors turned on the charm. We sat down, talked numbers and agreed to follow-up soon. When he walked away I dropped to my knees in the middle of the conference floor and thanked God for the opportunity.

This, less than one year ago. We signed the deal. Fate paved a way to get out of our previous distribution deal 18 months before the term and now I am sitting in Nashville, TN after previewing our Fall 2019 releases to the 50+ sales team at Ingram Global HQ.

For the love of books, I never gave up. For the love of books, there was always just enough. For the love of books, 5 years later we have 90+ books under contract and despite the extreme emotional roller coaster that I’ve been on for the last half a decade, I have never been more excited, never been more committed, never been more optimistic for the glorious future that lies ahead.

Not just for the next 5 years, but the next 50 and the next 500 because books have an infinite shelf life. And the work I’m doing now, the moment I am in now working on close to 20 books at once will transcend me. It will live on long after I’m gone, will inspire and instruct the next generation to passionately pursue their every dream.

For the love of books.  

To your success,
